Rufus is a 9 month old, 36 lb Schnauzer, probably mixed with either a Poodle or Chocolate Lab. Foster mom says is a very loving & friendly dog. He greets people by jumping up and showering them with kisses! He loves his flamingo toy & tennis ball. He goes around the house and collects things like shoes, boxes, etc. and makes a pile of them. He doesn't destroy any of his "treasures", he just collects them. His favorite thing to do is just hang around with foster dad, sitting quietly by his side. Rufus is still a puppy though, so he will need plenty of exercise, whether it's chasing tennis balls around the back yard or going on at least a couple of good brisk walks every day. Rufus doesn't live with kids, but we think he would be fine with kids over the age of 6. He does a little of the puppy mouthing play, but he is gentle about it. He is a very quiet dog, except he does bark in protest when he has to go into his crate, but even then, the barking doesn't last long. He sheds very little, and is tolerant of bath time. The only issue with Rufus is that he is food and treat possessive around other dogs. If adopters have other dogs, they need to be aware that food and treats always need to be given in separate areas. Rufus would do best as an only dog. So, if you are looking for your one & only, Rufus could be your boy, and he will be a fun & loving companion!
